  1. Do one of the following to open the Identity Plate Editor:
    • Choose Edit > Identity Plate Setup (Windows) or Lightroom > Identity Plate Setup (Mac OS).

    • In the Overlays panel of the Slideshow module or the Page panel of the Print module, click the Identity Plate preview and choose Edit from the pop-up menu.

  2. In the Identity Plate Editor, select one of the following:

    Use A Styled Text Identity Plate

    Uses the text you enter in the box with the font characteristics that you specify in the menus below the box.

    Tip: (Mac OS) To create a multiline text identity plate, press Option+Return in the text box. Lightroom displays just the first line of an identity plate to the left of the Module Picker. However, all lines appear when the identity plate is selected as an output overlay in the Slideshow, Print, or Web module.

    Use A Graphical Identity Plate

    Uses a graphic that is no more than 41 pixels high (Mac OS) or 46 pixels high (Windows) that you drag into the box. The graphic can be a BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG, or TIFF (Windows), or JPG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, PDF, or PSD (Mac OS). The resolution of graphical identity plates may be too low for printed output.

  3. Choose Save As from the Enable Identity Plate menu, and give your identity plate a name.

  4. To display your identity plate on the left side of the Module Picker, select Enable Identity Plate and choose one of your saved identity plates from the menu to the right.

  5. In the pop-up menus in the right side of the dialog box, customize the font, size, and color of the Module Picker buttons. The first color picker box sets the color of the current module, and the second box sets the color for unselected modules.
